I keep watching the show but every episode there are at least one but usally more things that I can't help but think to my self, "WTF is up with this show".
So I thought I would post what I think they could do to fix the show in the off chance that anyone related to the show might read it. I do agree with other posters though that if the show keeps the way it is going I am going to pretend it doesn't exist in the Stargate universe much like Startrek V. How ever I am not giving up hope yet that possibly in a second season they might improve it.
First thing is all the worlds they have visted just plane suck. The cool thing about Stargate SG1 is most of the worlds are based on Myths. Now since they are far away from earth the cultures might not be the same but atleast make them better. (on the same note in Stargate SG1 they explained why the worlds all are based on human myths but what the hell are Humans doing around Atlantis, why would the ancients bring them there?)
The second thing is they need an Asguard as a character. Because it is way to glaring a fact that the Asguard aren't involed in any way. But hell a simple transmition from the Asguard saying "yeah we knew about the wraith and that is the reason we can't go to Atlantis to get your people and why we didn't mention them to you" or mabey a Tok'ra but still the Asguard either have to be there or have some REALLY good reason they can't help.
Thrid didn't they come there to get things that should help Earth battle the Goa'uld. So lets get more plot lines like we found this great weapon that could help but damn it we can't contact them we need to spend more eps searching to contact Earth.
Fourth we need to me the race that they haven't shown yet. Mabey tease us with it and then come around and say that the Wraiths are really them (mabey they changed themselves to kill Ancients in a war with them who the hell knows). I think that would be cool but hell lets meet them.
Fifth although the Goa'uld aren't the main bad guys there it doesn't mean there aren't any. Mabey they were cut off. Mabey the Goa'uld real homeworld is near. How about the reason the Goa'uld never were able to take control of the area was the Wraith. And the old Goa'uld don't know about it because it has been such a long time since the Goa'uld's in our part of the Galaxy had contact with the ones by Atlantis (this also opens the possiblity of the ancients accidently bringing the Goa'uld to earth). So to sum up this idea they Goa'uld there could be more like the Tok'ra where mabey they don't like humans but they team up with us because they are also fighting the Wraith.
Spoilers for The Defiant One
7th I am sick of people we see once and they drop dead. It is so obvious they are cannon fodder. Just stick them in another episode breifly to show them they exist for other things then dieing. This doesn't even have to cost any extra money they just need to prepare and shoot the other episode scenes when the actor is present for his big cannon fodder role.
8th Don't keep them out of contact with SG-1 untill the VERY last episode in the 7th season (if it runs that long). Give them contact before then. It wouldn't hurt any and they could have broader missions. This doesn't mean they have to defeat the Wraiths but hell atleast radio contact would make sense.
9th stop putting every main Char that isn't in the military in a military role. They should be peon soldiers for that stuff. Not saying it can't even happen or they can't back up the military guys but they shouldn't be on point every episode.
In sumation I really think what can save this show is closer ties to SG-1.
Thats all my ranting for right now, feel free to post your own revision on the coarse the show should take, mabey if we get a big enough list some one from the show will do something or we could all be wasting our time, who knows.
